to extract the tunnel bearing machine at a site of the old pegola theatre on the edge of china town. i think that this is a very, very interesting prospect for the benefit that it would have to lower the level of community disruption and also because it marks the path of where that line might be extended into the north beach. i will share this with you. the multimillion-dollar projects are tricky. and the timing of those is even trickier because, it depends on the agreements that are reached at the regional level about the priority of projects especially for federal funds. but, the utility of projects really transcends those arguments and commitments and it is in the future. the authority several years ago did an analysis of the connectivity that would be provided by an extension of the central subway into north beach and the beneficial effects on the bus network and all-the transsiltko come mend the entire team and the feedbacks are available in the next couple of months as we finish talleying it. but it really bodes well for the level of participation for the san francisco plan which is a
